Julia Roberts gets the airbrush in new ad

London: Hollywood superstar Julia Roberts looks decades younger than her actual age thanks to some liberal airbrushing in the advertisement for a cosmetics giant.

The 42-year-old actress is the face of Lancome cosmetics and the `Pretty Woman` star is barely recognisable as she advertises the brand`s mascara, her brown wavy locks dyed blonde for the occasion.

The mother-of-three who signed a deal worth a reported USD 20 million with the brand, sports a unnatural looking smooth face with not a wrinkle in sight, reported a news website.

Heavy-handed air brushing of celebrities has come under attack in recent times, with many of the opinion that the perfect images cause an inferiority complex among women.

The romcom queen meanwhile has been busy promoting her new film `Eat, Pray, Love` based on the bestselling novel by Elizabeth Gilbert.
